This weekend we went to my in laws to celebrate O's birthday, it was yummy, cozy and fun. Their home is beautiful, designed and built by O's dad in the early 80s, on a nice wooded, private piece of land outside of Atlanta. I love going there, and I usually investigate all of the rugs when I do. There are rugs on every floor, some on the walls, even stunning tapestries on the chairs and sofas, it is a textile lover's delight, to put it mildly.
We mentioned that we are looking for a suitable rug for our living room, and they offered us a stunning blue and white silk Persian (not sure if it is actually a Persian, but it looks like it for me, maybe less complex in design.) We came home and put it down right away, and it makes the room feel even cozier.
